It’s okay, I’m sure this will be a brief and uneventful flirtation. My first experiences with Linux, about 8 or 9 years ago were with a KDE desktop, and the run-in was sufficiently horrific as to leave a very bad taste in my mouth, whenever I see that dragon thing.
On the other hand, I’m still running my perked Arch setup, which means I can play with KDEmod, and see what all the hubbub is about. I might reinstall anew after this is over — maybe Arch again, maybe Gutsy. It’s probably time, and I can always use the practice. Don’t want to turn out like this.
